    Upon A Hillside

    When I read this poem, I pictured a tranquil, night time scene with a view of Syracuse lit up from a distance. I wanted to capture the feeling of a cold but peaceful winter night. Most of the memories I have of Syracuse are of the cold winters and late nights working in the illustration studio, so I wanted to draw on that.

    For my poster, I decided to show two friends, up late and taking a relaxing moment to take in the view. In my work, I like to focus on happy and whimsical subject matter, so I emphasized the glow from the moon, stars, and the city, to add warmth to the piece despite the winter setting.
